Picture of the Day: Lee in Dallas
Given South Korea's prominent role as a supporting nation during the Iraq War — though they saw little action in the relatively peaceful Kurdish portion of Iraq, South Korea had the third largest military contingent in Iraq after the US and the UK — it's hardly a surprise that the South Korean president, himself a strong proponent of the ROK-US alliance, would be invited. (Lee's predecessor, left-leaning Roh Moohyun, took a major hit with his base by sending troops to participate in this unpopular war.)
I'll ask the obvious question: What is up with Lee Myungbak's neck?
Here's my other favorite photo: Dick Cheney as a tough cowboy.
